Unnatural Causes by Dawn Eastman

Unnatural Causes by Dawn Eastman

My Thoughts

Unnatural Causes by Dawn Eastman is the first book in the Dr. Katie LeClair mystery series. I found this to be a suspenseful mystery that had me juggling quite a few suspects along the way. I love the redirections thrown in and the way the story just kept growing. I thought the ending was so good! I am looking forward to more books in this series.

Mister Mottley and the Dying Fall by Ellen Seltz

Mister Mottley and the Dying Fall by Ellen Seltz

My Thoughts

Mister Mottley and the Dying Fall by Ellen Seltz is the second book in the Mottley and Baker Mysteries series. This series is set in the Golden Age and injects a fair dose of humor with mystery. In this second adventure, Mottley finds himself on another mystery-solving adventure. I had a blast reading this book. Mottley and Baker are so funny and I look forward to their wry, witty remarks. If you love mysteries in the vein of Agatha Christie, don’t pass this series by.

Secret Santa Baby by Robin Covington – Review

Secret Santa Baby by Robin Covington is FREE!
Grab your copy today!

My Thoughts

This holiday story from Robin Covington is sexy, short and sweet. Perfect for curling up in front of the Christmas tree after a busy day. I read this story while waiting in the emergency room with my boyfriend. It really sucked me in and kept my attention, even with all that was going on. I was so grateful to have this book on my Kindle!

Tessa and Nick had incredible chemistry. I liked that there was just enough of a backstory and conflict for a short story before diving into the heat. If you like hot quickies, you’ll love Secret Santa Baby by Robin Covington.

Margaritas, Mayhem and Murder by Mary Cunningham – Fast Five with Andi Anna Jones (and giveaway)

Margaritas, Mayhem and Murder by Mary Cunningham – Fast Five with Andi Anna Jones (and giveaway)

Fast Five with Andi Anna Jones

1) As a travel agent, you must love travel. Where are your favorite places to go?

Really? You assume I love travel? I suppose that’s a popular misconception about agents. Actually, I get so sick of hearing customer complaints, personal travel is about the last thing I want to do! And, crowded airplanes (I’m a severe claustrophic!), airports, and lost luggage? Forget it!

Well, unless it involves a white sand beach in Cancun, a handsome sheriff, and a pitcher-full of margaritas. On second thought, travel can be pretty cool!

2) How did you find yourself as an amateur sleuth?

I’ve always been interested in “sleuthing”. I watched Matlock, Murder She Wrote, and Columboreruns while …

Black Arts, Tarts and Gypsy Carts by Erin Johnson

Black Arts, Tarts and Gypsy Carts by Erin Johnson

Character Interview with Imogen

1. What’s it like working in the royal bakery?
It’s amazing! Everyday is whirlwind, baking for the royal family’s meals, special events and parties. I have to wash the flour out of my hair every night and my legs ache from standing all day, but it’s my favorite place in the world. I get to make special treats that make people happy and everyday’s a new adventure.

2. What is your favorite part of having magic?
I think I’d enjoy having magic a lot more if I was any good at it! It seems like every spell I try is a disaster. But I must say, practicing with Hank is a big plus.

3. How are you liking life on …

Holiday Wishes by Jill Shalvis
Heartbreaker Bay #4.5

It’s Christmastime again in Heartbreaker Bay!

When Sean O’Riley shows up at the Hartford Bed & Breakfast for his older brother’s bachelor weekend, he’s just hoping to make it through the weekend. What he’s not expecting is to come face to face with the woman he lost his virginity to a decade ago—a woman he’s never really forgotten.

The last time Lotti Hartford saw Sean, she told him she loved him while he said nothing. Now, ten years later, she’s just looking for a good time. For once, she wants to be the wild and free one, and Sean – the good time guy – is the perfect candidate.

But as the weekend continues, Sean …

A Deadly Éclair by Daryl Wood Gerber – Camembert Onion and Mushroom Soup Recipe + Review + Giveaway

A Deadly Éclair by Daryl Wood Gerber – Camembert Onion and Mushroom Soup Recipe + Review + Giveaway

Traveling Meal
Soup

As our traveling feast continues, it’s time for soup. Do you love soup? I’m not big on cold soups, but I adore hot soups. I don’t get to eat soup out at restaurants very often because there are so many that are made with a roux (or gluten). That doesn’t mean I can’t cook them at home.

Since we’re still celebrating the upcoming release of the first of the French Bistro Mysteries, A DEADLY ÉCLAIR, on our tour, I thought I’d share an onion soup I make with Camembert cheese rather than the typical Gruyère cheese. Of course, the soup is loaded with onions.

FYI, I’m turned on by aromas. If I can’t rum up …

Blackberry Burial by Sharon Farrow

Blackberry Burial by Sharon Farrow

My Thoughts

Blackberry Burial by Sharon Farrow is the second book in the Berry Basket Mystery Series. The cast of characters was so delightful that I didn’t want to put this mystery down. With the weather recently taking a cold turn in Ohio, I enjoyed getting to read a summertime mystery set along the Michigan shoreline. I loved how the author wrote an exciting story right from the beginning, with things to keep me guessing the whole time. One of my favorite things about starting a cozy mystery series that is already out is knowing that I can go back and read the first book in the series and spend more time with the characters right away. I absolutely adored Blackberry …
